"new"
"progressive"

and a government that will have lost his majority by Easter, well before it actually does anything

You won't be forming a government any time soon.

And yet any government I were a part of would do far more for the country than this one will, not least because it will actually do stuff for the country rather than simply exist

And let's not forget the liberals have an illustrious history of coalition fatigue meaning you can only rely on them to form a zombie government for so long

Yippee, a dead government made even worse by the fact that the most dead party in MHoC are the largest party. What an exciting term we have ahead of us.

I'm not so sure labour are the most dead, the libs give them a run for their money, and in consistent public engagement it's probably neither

I'd say Labour pip them to the post but as you say the Lib Dems put up a fight in that regard. At least with the Liberals some active names come to mind (Fez, 04 etc) I can't think of any active Labour members (onsite anyway, may be some offsite I don't know since I don't look that often)

It seems the GE has changed very little, aside from taking some seats away from the Libers.

Let's see what this government can do with a dead party "in charge". Perhaps the Liberal Democrats will simply dominate.

I don't currently consider myself anywhere near active, if that gives a bit of perspective. (offsite 100% doesn't count)

Disappointed but not surprised. Let’s hope some of these Labour accounts that have just been created with 0 posts end up losing their seats in the first review then the adults can take over.

Not exactly "another" government when this is a continuation of the previous government exactly.

Lab and Lib are reversed though - the Liberals are much reduced in seats and logically will be a much weaker voice in this new government whereas they provided the PM and were the largest party last term. For that reason I’d say it’s functionally a different govt.

that suggests that Labour has suddenly become revitalised. Also, my experience is that MP seats matter little in the balance of power in government.

Not really, this was an RL election remember.

Over the entirety of last term Labour was not really any more active than the start.
